Nefesh Mountain: Bluegrass, Newgrass, Jewgrass

Nefesh Mountain

Temple Israel of Hollywood

“Refreshingly eclectic.” —Rolling Stone

“The music is perfection… Outstanding bluegrass from New York natives tracked in Nashville with a veritable all-star backing band.” —The Journal of Roots Music: No Depression

Nefesh Mountain is the place where Bluegrass, Old-Time, and American Roots music meet with Jewish heritage and tradition - a perfect entree to the UCLA American Jewish Music Festival: Music Crossing Boundaries. Creators, band leaders and husband and wife team Doni Zasloff and Eric Lindberg are the heart of this eclectic offering, pioneering a new world of American culture that seamlessly blends their deep love for American and Western musical forms with their own cultural backgrounds as Jewish Americans.

The result of this unexpected and beautiful mix is staggering, and alongside band members Alan Grubner (fiddle), David Goldenberg (mandolin) and Max Johnson (bass), is adept with the string virtuosity and through composed arrangements of a modern folk/bluegrass band with songs of the heart and sense of diversity, oneness, and purpose for our world today.

This performance is co-presented by the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and TIOH Arts & Culture as a special pre-festival concert for the UCLA American Jewish Music Festival: Music Crossing Boundaries.

This performance is made possible by the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. It is co-presented with the TIOH Arts & Culture.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
